Techno Animal's best collaboration with another artist, IMO.

Kevin Martin - The Bug, one half of Techno Animal - has been touting his fusion of dub, metal, hip hop and techno for over a decade now; The Curse of the Golden Vampire, with fellow hardcore headz Alec Empire and JK Flesh (Napalm Death, Techno Animal), is a new incarnation of white futurist dub. Forget the reggae stylings of Mad Professor - dub has never sounded so aggressive or inhuman. Empire's eight slow, percussive tracks are torn apart by Kevin and Justin; drums become explosions, sounds clash with shards of reverb and exotic instruments wail in the mix, before each tracks drowns under its own weight, boiling down to nothing more than radio static.
One of the most convincing projects from either the Martin or the Empire camps, The Curse of the Golden Vampire is a mindblowing exercise in earbleed electronics.
